Why Accessibility Matters
The ADA is being aggressively enforced and rightfully so. Millions of Americans are impaired and unable to access a surprisingly huge number of websites.
Everyone loses when a visitor wants to patronize your business but can not. At the end of the day accessibility is about accommodating visitors, growing engagement and winning more business.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does my website need to be ADA compliant?
If you do business in the US, the answer is absolutely. The primary drivers of this requirement are both legal and practical. Lawsuits increased 187% in 2018 against non-accessible websites. About 15% of the population is disabled in some form, and as “Boomers” continue to age, websites will need to facilitate their vision and mobility impairments.
What is your evaluation criteria?
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is the mostly widely accepted framework used to achieve and maintain compliance with most accessibility standards and regulations. In WCAG 2.1 was referenced in 100% of federal lawsuits in 2019. Therefore our recommendations are generally based on WCAG 2.1 Level AA. If you have other requirements, please contact us to discuss.
